The Madison Beach Hotel has a classic New England coastal vibe, and this dress from Connecticut based designer,Â Modern Trousseau has sophistication with a touch of romance. I just adore the classic New England feel that the seersucker inspired silk taffeta stripe provides.Â I love the lace and the fit to flair silhouette-- so romantic! I'd envision navy's and blush pinks used as a color story with this and perhaps a touch of gold. Big, romantic arrangements and feminine linens would be gorgeous for the tablescapes! I'd consider adding draping to the outside deck overlooking the water for a soft, flowy feel during cocktail hour.Candice Coppola is the owner and creative director of Jubilee Events, an event design and planning studio based in Cheshire, Connecticut.
